Thre themes developed including: 1) Expresions of cognitve disonance in statements expresing enjoyment of the practice of design piracy as a consumer; yet disapointment when (and if) their own design work was copied. 2) Concerns re- garding the definiton of originality and the logistics of enforcing a plan against design piracy. 3) Diferences of opinion regarding the prevalence of the practice, particularly if the students had industry experience or not.
